My fabulous friend and bridesmaid, Isabel, bought me a truffle butter and truffle oil from Williams Sonoma as a shower gift, and unfortunately for me, she knows me all too well. I am addicted to the stuff. Thankfully, I kept those babies sealed until after the big day, and now my husband is stuck with me (though he’s not complaining – he likes my cooking.) Aside from truffle butters and oils being a tad caloric and on the pricey side, it’s just so darn good. So far I am a truffle novice – I baked a white macaroni and cheese with it, and have tried it on french fries (Baked, I promise!)
I searched truffle butter on the internet and found a lot of recipes for truffle butter risotto…definitely next on my list. A little bit of parmigiano reggiano, chicken stock, and white wine, and you’re there! I think marriage has upped the ante on my chef aspirations. Not to mention all of those wedding gift cards to Williams Sonoma – man, I love that store!
